Reggie Evans LOLs at J.R. Smith’s championship guarantee

The Nets’ Paul Pierce and Knicks’ Raymond Felton went at it in defense of their teams, and even the NBA saw Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov and Knicks owners James Dolan were on the same track. J.R. Smith also said the Nets weren’t good.

There might have been more sniping between the two sides at some point this summer, but honestly, the bluster has been too great to track comprehensively.

Add one more small diss to the pile.

In response to a tweet linking our post on Smith’s NBA title guarantee, Nets forward Reggie Evans tweeted “LOL” (hat tip: ESPN New York).

I wonder whether Evans clicked through to the post, which also contained Smith’s line about the Nets. A refresher of the report by Marc Berman of the New York Post:

Smith was then asked why he joined the Knicks over the Nets when he came back from China in February 2012.

“The Nets weren’t good,’’ Smith said. “Now they’re still not good.’’

I’d like to hear Evans’ response to that. Really, unless someone is going to elevate this offseason talk above mild jabs, I just want to see these teams on the court.

The Knicks and Nets play Dec. 5, Jan. 20, April 2 and April 15.

They’ll also likely meet in the Eastern Conference Finals as the Knicks head toward their first championship since 1973. LOL.
